Those are the rules in Rowans Glen, a remote farming community in the Missouri Ozarks where Ivy Templetons family has lived for centuries. Its an old-fashioned way of life, full of superstition and traditions, and sixteen-year-old Ivy loves it. The other kids at school may think the Glen kids are weird, but Ivy doesnt careshe has her cousin Heather as her best friend. The two girls share everything with each otheror so Ivy thinks. When Heather goes missing after a May Day celebration, Ivy discovers that both her best friend and her beloved hometown are as full of secrets as the woods that surround them.

Creepy, dark and weird. Just what I expected. The Mayqueen Murders is a good fall read. I would have rated it a 4 instead of 3 but it had pacing issues and some aspects seemed implausible. The first half was a slow burn but I really sunk my teeth into it after that. I may have nightmares tonight.

very atmospheric with beautiful writing, but the plot was lacking and predictable. also, characters were quite flat.

I struggled to finish this book. It started out strong but I found myself not caring about the characters or paying attention to the words I was reading.

Ivy kind of made me crazy but I did like how she was half Mexican. You don‘t get a lot of heroines that‘s are. The best part of the story was when the whole mystery unraveled in the last 10 pages.

This also kind of reminded me of that movie The Village.

⭐️⭐️⭐️

BekahB I had the same issues with the book. I was really interested in the story in the beginning but kind of lost interest towards the end. And I remember feeling like the ending kind of came out of nowhere. 2y
That-Bookish-Hiker @BekahB I felt the ending cane out of nowhere too. It revealed the mystery of who was doing what and then it kept going and unraveling with more people and I was scratching my head like “what in the world is going on?” And I may have yelled at Ivy out loud and scared my husband lol. 2y

That-Bookish-Hiker @AvidBookWorm02 oh man that sucks. Before I moved to Portland my closest Target was 45 mins away so I never went to it. Luckily the Walmart was closer to me. (edited) 2y

The mystery in his book had me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions and questions and i wanted/needed to know the ending of this story. The characters were well done and unique (although i didnt cry) and the setting was definitely different. I enjoyed the creepiness of the entire book from the very first page and loved the horror of each twist of the plot.

I started the May Queen Murders today and it's kind of a bit creepy! And of course my copy of It came in so i figured a chapter a day will keep the clown away... hopefully 🙈

By the way that's probably the ghettoest mp3 player ever. Does anyone else listen to music while they read?

I should follow her example and nap, but I'm trying to get through a few must reads on this random self imposed day off! Hoping this one will be satisfyingly creepy :)

Interesting premise, but the book was watery to me. It took a few chapters to get into the story, but I did become invested for a time. Unfortunately, the plot kept getting thinner as the book went on and, by the end, I much didn't care about what was happening. Too many twists can be a bad thing.
